Laugh Out Loud

What makes a comedy real funny? Something that floats on the changing tides of time and taste, remaining relevant and hilarious?

It probably takes more than slapstick, like a pie in the face. We don’t have the answer, but with a partial list assembling some of the best comedies ever made, we’re getting closer to laugh-out-loud enlightenment than humanly thought possible. We’re talking about melting minds, splitting sides, and slapping knees, folks.

To that end, we’ve included all forms of comedy movies. From slapstick like Dumb & Dumber, It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World to silent The General, Modern Times. Romantic comedies Moonstruck, Annie Hall to Screwballs It Happened One Night, Bringing Up Baby. Parodies Airplane!, Scary Movie to postmodern Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Galaxy Quest.

The major motion picture that will take you to college like Animal House, past some fan favorites Step Brothers, Super Troopers, and all around the globe Kung Fu Hustle, Amelie.
